This photo MEME is from Pinterest. I LOVE it. I don't know who gets the credit, but I love it.
Need anything? You bet we did......but it wasn't yarn
-Our beloved Honda Rhonda, who is 18 years old, crapped out on Zach and his friend last night in Chicago.
All good. It happened during Puerto Rican fest and the car refused to move, right in front of a CHICAGO FIRE station.
Some nice motorcycle guys pushed them into the fire house parking lot.
-Chicago is so ALIVE at night. I've never really stayed in the city at night other than the immediate downtown area near Lakeshore Drive. We went to get them after 11 pm and the city was absolutely electric. So many people under 35 I'd say, out about, waiting to get into bars in lines, walking on a warm night, headed to or from a festival on bike or foot.( Don't these people want to sleep? )
It was amazing to me to see the car traffic, the foot traffic the bike traffic. Everyone having a nice time. Many cars and trucks with ENORMOUS Puerto Rican flags riding down the street joyfully.
We have many issues of violence in Chicago and it is so sad. Last night, though, between Bucktown and Humboldt park, we had a good experience.
- Once Fireman and I arrived, Fireman talked to the firemen and the brotherhood kicked in. We were allowed to leave the broken honda there overnight. Safe from towing. We tried to get a tow truck, but there was a many hour wait last night.
-Early this morning we went back down to the Firehouse, with Donuts and Several pounds of Dunkin Ground coffee for the crew. They asked us in to have breakfast with them at the firehouse. Honest to God. It was very hot out, but we declined. It is their HOME and we didn't want to intrude. (They told Fireman they had 21 calls during the night last night out of their station) (And to be honest, if he had looked like Kurt Russell I would have busted that brunch up big time and shamelessly sat at their table) but, I digress...
Soon enough the tow truck arrived.
-Rhonda's back home. It all ended well. She may be broken but she aint dead yet.
-There was so much good in humanity this weekend for us.
Stay hopeful. Good prevails.
See you tomorrow of our question day!
